WORK HISTORY

I set up Fidelity Logistics Limited and started working as an agency driver for a very well known supermarket chain. Delivering full refrigerated loads to supermarkets, even when the car parks are full.

I also expanded to set up Trucklumi.eu, which supplies commercial vehicle lighting products to end users and major international supply chains.

Aug 2005 – Aug 2014

After joining the RAF, I completed advanced driver training and had deployments across the globe, taking on some great roles in the process. Here’s a list of my most memorable experiences:

  • Qatar – Shift Runner (Passenger and Crew Movements)

EDUCATION

2002 – 2003

First Diploma in Public Services

Bishop Auckland Technical College

I studied Public Services as a stepping stone and preparation to join the Royal Air Force. I had 6 years of Air Cadets, so to go into the RAF was a no brainer.

This was a job that I greatly enjoyed. The fast paced deployment aspect, along with the required daily problem solving of complex and important issues kept me going at full steam. I got to travel and see the world, meet new people and take on highly responsible roles. I left in an honourable discharge after my 9 year contract expired and with 3 medals.

2013 – 2016

Whilst preparing for civilian life, I obtained some advanced certificates in IT and Office software in order to make myself more employable to a potential employer. I already had this knowledge, but no formal qualifications to back them up.
